Sharon Osbourne confronts cancer fears with double mastectomy11/5/2012
"America's Got Talent" judge Sharon Osbourne has revealed she is taking no chances when it comes to her health. In an interview with Hello! Magazine, Osbourne, 60, announced she has undergone a double mastectomy after discovering she carries a gene that increases her chances of developing breast cancer. The 60-year-old said: "I've had cancer before and I didn't want to live under that cloud. I decided to just take everything off, and had a double mastectomy." Sharon's op comes just months after her son Jack (who was recently diagnosed with multiple sclerosis) had a daughter. Sharon added "I want to be around for a long time and be a grandmother to Pearl."
